Our Mission

Leavethe99 exists to share the message of hope and love in unreached areas of the world. Our goal is to do this through church planting, leadership and discipleship training, and helping the poor.

Leavethe99 was birthed out of a challenge God gave from Matthew 18:12.

“What do you think? If a man has 100 sheep, and one of them goes astray, won’t he leave the 99 on the hillside and go search for the stray? And if he finds it, I assure you: He rejoices over that sheep more than over the 99 that did not go astray. In the same way, it is not the will of the Father in heaven that one of these little ones perish.”

This call to “leaving the 99 for the one” has been a reoccurring theme throughout  our lives. The Lord has challenged us many times with the simple question: “Will you go for one?” We are always are being compelled to seek out those on the fringe, whether it be those who have turned away from a previous relationship with God or those who haven’t had the privilege of hearing the good news.

This vision has been fueled and refined through the great commission.

Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:18-20

We accomplish this through:

  1. Sharing the message of Hope to the world by proclaiming the Good News.
  2. Training pastors and lay people who share the message of Hope.
  3. Helping the poor.

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2

Would you go for one? Are you one?

  • Outcasts
  • Neighbors
  • Edges of the world/Edges of life

You have a purpose, and there is hope.

“Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.” Prov 24:11
